Dental Implants Might Be Your Solution
Dental implants are the preferable way to replace lost teeth. From the front of your smile, where they are clearly visible, to
the back, where they provide for stable eating, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges
or removable dentures, which rest on top of the gums, dental implants are placed below the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant
looks real, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth! Implants can replace any
number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that
stay in place while talking and don’t need to be removed at night. Because we handle everything from implant placement to crown
fabrication, you won’t need to be referred to another office.
All-on-4™ Immediate Load Implants – Another Option
In addition to traditional implants, we are also excited to offer our patients All-on-4™ immediate load implants. With this
option, most patients require only four implants, which securely hold permanent dentures in place that don’t need to be taken out.
The best part is that you can arrive in our office with missing or unhealthy teeth and leave with beautiful, functioning teeth –
all in the same day. The use of four to six strategically positioned implants gives strong support for your new teeth. Immediate
load implants can withstand pressure immediately without waiting for the bone to heal around them.
When a patient lost teeth through trauma, decay, or extraction and opted to have dental implants in the past, they would generally
need to be referred to an oral surgeon. The surgeon would place the implants and the patient would return to the regular dentist to
have the teeth placed on the implants. At our practice, we can place the immediate load implants and the teeth in one visit.
Mini Implants to Securely Anchor Dentures
Do you wearing dentures because you were told you couldn’t get implants due to insufficient bone density? Do your dentures slip, tilt,
or wander, and you would prefer to have the strength and stability of implants? Introducing mini implants! Mini implants can replace
one missing tooth or securely anchor your dentures, eliminating slippage and trapped food. They are placed in one visit and are virtually
painless. You can even eat the same day you receive them. Additionally, they can often be placed where regular implants cannot, so you
can receive the benefits of mini implants even if you are not a standard dental implant candidate.
